Discipleship and the Idols of Family and Culture – The Gospel Coalition Blog

When was the last time I heard a sermon on the true cost of discipleship? I don’t recall hearing any when I was growing up. I can’t recall any over the last 10 years, appart from one by Mark Driscoll a few months ago. We always tend to always water down Christ’s claims to total devotion to him. but that’s wrong. This article has challenged me. What about you?

Here is a good read if you are interested in French society. Everything you want to know about the French people. The chapter on values is very thought provoking. A good tool to try to understand French society and get thinking about how the gospel responds to its values.

Amazon Partners Website

I recently discovered that Amazon has a program which allows people to link to products and get a commission on the sales of the products they advertise. So I thought to myself why not give it a try? Here is the link: Keloù Mat’s recommended Books.

I’ll add some books to the selection. When you buy through this page, I’ll get a commission (a book token, I could have chosen a check but am not really interested).

Timothy Keller, La raison est pour Dieu

Tim Keller’s book “the Reason for God” came out recently in French. I ordered two copies, one for myself, and a spare one to lend or give away. It is a very good book, a bit heavy at times, but it is worth the effort. It was written for unbelievers in mind, but I found it helpful because it helps articulate answers to the doubts people raise concerning Christianity. Here is a video where Tim Keller explains the aim of his book:
